Dessa "Sound The Bells" (Daniel Cummings, dir.)

For this music video, the musician, who just goes by Dessa, literally took a dive.

The singer, songwriter and spoken-word artist appears in this video, on location, and under water.

It's for this song she wrote two years ago called "Sound the Bells" — telling a mariner's tale of a shipwreck foretold — a crew knowing that it would perish.

Late one night, after recording the song, a filmmaker Daniel Cummings sent Dessa a surreal picture: life-sized statues of people, submerged below water.
